+ibycus Posted October 9, 2007 Share Posted October 9, 2007 Main asset is (i) autorouting data (with one-way streets, turn lanes, overpasses, entrance ramps, etc. this is not trivial), which often takes wheels on the ground to develop and (3) some 6 million + "points of interest" which requires constant updating, plus geocoding to plot. I would expect that there is a lot of effort involved all around. Hmmmm, I don't know... Did NavTeq really have people on wheels developing this? I know the Free Canadian Map set has much (all?) of the above information in it. The only real hurdle to overcome is getting it in to the proper format... I'm thinking this is the real reason Garmin wasn't in a rush to spend billions of dollars on them. Quote Link to comment
